Glad you could join the fun. What kinds of things are you interested in making? Sounds as if you may have done some DIY projects over the years. Did you get the plunge base? A router table (home made is fine) is a very good thing and makes routing much safer than working freehand. If you search for shop made or home made router tables, you'll find a wealth of informaiton. You can put together a workable table for maybe $25 to $100, depending on how fancy you want to get. Also, do you have a table saw yet? These questions are very helpful for Forum members to offer input or help.
